Nov 19, 2015 ASSC Luncheon

Please join the Academic Staff Steering Committee (ASSC) of the WSU AAUP-AFT, Local 6075, for a luncheon on Thursday, November 19th, from12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m. to learn more about the Snowpile program at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

The Snowpile program allows parents of patients in the hospital to rest a little easier during the holiday season. Unlike many holiday donation drives, Snowpilefocuses on the entire family, providing gifts for hospitalized children AND their siblings. New toys are collected from volunteers all over the city, and parents are given the opportunity to hand-select gifts and to relax for a few moments in a hospitality lounge while dedicated volunteers wrap their selections.

Presenters at the luncheon will be representatives from Children’s Hospital, Deanna Scanlon, Child Life Projects Specialist; and Mary Kraft, Child Life Specialist; and Michelle Fecteau and Dennis Beste on the importance of service as it relates to promotion and ESS for academic staff.

The luncheon will be held in the Undergraduate Library Community Room (3rd Floor).
